Primary Region

Skip this step if you continue from “Module 4: Hot Stand-By” of the lab and didn’t clean up its resources. You can move on to the Verify Websites step now.

1.1 Deploy the application to the primary region N. Virginia (us-east-1) by launching this CloudFormation Template.

1.2 Specify the stack parameters:

  • Stack name: hot-primary
  • IsPrimary: yes (leave the default value)
  • LatestAmiId: (leave the default value)

Leave isPrimary and LatestAmiId as the default values

1.3 Click Next to continue.

1.4 Leave the Configure stack options page defaults and click Next to continue.

1.5 Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the checkbox to acknowledge IAM role creation, then click Create stack.

You will need to wait for the Hot Primary Region stack to have a status of Completed before moving on to this section. This will take approximately 15 minutes.
